Spicy Blackberry Sangria

Spicy Blackberry Sangria


As I mentioned in my Mabon post, Blackberries and wine are essential elements for this celebration. I like to serve this with a simple cheese, fruit, and bread platter. This beverage is also very nice to serve throughout the Autumn and Winter seasons.

You will love to sip and share this beverage. I make this sangria during Mabon and have it around up until Samhain. You can control the spice of this beverage with how much of the pepper up put in. On a chilly autumn night, this is a great beverage for warming you completely.

Recipe Notes

This drink is suitable for all your Autumn gatherings. I keep a bottle in my fridge for whenever I'm invited to a dinner party, or when I need something to warm me on an, especially cold day.

I just want good food and to live a Magickal life! Is that so much to ask?
Through persistence, I found the honest answer… I can have both! I realize that I could forge my own path using the skills and knowledge I gained, and the simplest of techniques.

I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute. Okay… well, enjoying almost every minute of it.

In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where I combine food and spirituality. To my delight they play brilliantly together.

My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach a variety of cooking classes for adults and covens on subjects ranging from making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable, to cooking together as a group, and recipe-spell creation.

It only made sense that I would begin writing and sharing my experience. From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most mundane task and make it Magickal!

The Magick Kitchen is about connecting to Divinity through food and the ritual of preparing and sharing food. It is about developing a sacred balance between nourishment, ritual, and spirit. Food has the power to heal, sooth, and bring us together as friends, families, and community.

I am so glad you joined me! Sharing knowledge, experience, and personal perspective with you is an honor. Thank you!
